This nicely aromatic wine was unusually light for Nebbiolo grape, dominated with cut hay aromas upon opening and followed by light berry and violet scents. I expected notes of rose and liquorice, but didn’t sense them. I don’t think there is a need to age this wine as I doubt it will evolve anymore. The tannins were refined to tannic and the finish was medium. All in all, this wine is very nice after 1 hour of sitting in the decanter, but I think that in comparison to other value Nebbiolos there is no potential for aging and hence I would not stock up on it especially when the cost should not exceed $15. Overall impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL. Tasted Feb/10.
